It is plain stupid.

The "antibot policy" is a fallacy. They do not care about stopping
bots, they want you to stop setting servers on your connection without
paying them (more).

Off-topic, but this might very from place to place - ISPs do care about
getting blacklisted. With spambots on your network, that'll happen
quite quickly and next your support line will be jammed with callers.

Maybe. My ISP prefers not to care. If they block 25, then they have to
provide and handle mail relay, which they do not want, anyway. Too much
work. They are no more providing mail service, as it is: only those
clients that have it, keep it. No more new client mail addresses. Need
mail? Use gmail, hotmail, etc.

If there are spam bots on the client side, so be it. /Their/ mail hosts
are on a different network, so not affected. And as you are not supposed
to have servers, you can not complain if your IP is blacklisted.

If you pay for a server connection with a fixed IP, then they treat you
differently.

As it is, they don't block any port whatsoever.
